Survey Exploring the Relationship Between Grit, Work Engagement, & Career Success Among U.S. Pharmacists
Background: This study will focus on both subjective and objective career success within the pharmacy profession and will examine whether two factors, grit and work engagement, impact career success.
- If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete an anonymous survey. Your participation in this study will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
- Your individual responses and any personal information will be kept strictly confidential and no identifiable information will be linked to survey responses.
- One of every 10 randomly selected participants will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. Additionally, three types of grand prizes will be offered to 27 randomly selected participants: Amazon Echo Dot (3), Hydro Flask (12), and Yeti Rambler (12). Winners of one raffle will not be excluded from the other. Therefore, you may be selected to receive both a grand prize and an Amazon gift card. At the end of the survey, you will see a link that allows you to submit your name and email address on a form from another website, which will be used to contact you if you win a raffle prize. By adopting two separate websites, survey answers will NOT be linked with any identifiable information.
- Please see details in the consent form regarding risks, your rights, and any other additional information regarding the survey.

To Evaluate Pharmacist-Provided Patient Care Services, Reimbursement for Such Services, and Barriers to Providing Them
Background: Under Assembly Bill 1114, pharmacist services are rendered as benefits under the Medi-Cal program, allowing pharmacists to bill and receive 85% of the fee schedule for physician services. These trained services include: Smoking Cessation/Nicotine Replacement Therapy, Naloxone Training, Hormonal Contraceptives, Immunizations, HIV PreP, HIV PEP, and Travel Medicine. This survey was made to research how AB1114 services are being provided, the frequency of its provisions, and the barriers to its implementations in community pharmacies. The goal is to see how pharmacists can better implement these services while receiving the appropriate reimbursements. With this research, we hope to improve and increase awareness of pharmacy services to further ensure quality of patient care.
Survey: Your individual responses and any personal information will be kept strictly confidential and no individually identifying information will be reported or disseminated. Participation is voluntary and if you choose not to participate, your relationship with CUSP will not be negatively impacted. By completing this survey, you are giving consent for your responses to be used for this student project. The survey is 25 questions long and should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact Stephanie Sy, information below.

Survey of Adverse Childhood Experiences in California Doctor of Pharmacy Students
Background: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are being increasingly recognized as contributing to poor mental or physical health throughout life. Knowledge of ACE scores is associated with improved ability for individuals to understand themselves and healthcare providers to give optimal care when necessary. Prevalence of ACEs in California student pharmacists is unknown, yet likely relevant to educational institutions in understanding how to foster the best learning environments.
Aims: The purpose of this survey is to measure the prevalence of ACEs in students enrolled in a Doctor of Pharmacy program in the State of California. The secondary purpose is to explore relationships between ACE scores, demographics, mental health, resiliency, and maladaptive coping mechanisms.
Risks & Benefits: There are no foreseeable physical, social, or legal risks to taking the survey. There may be risk of experiencing psychological pain as potentially traumatic events are recalled. Benefits include an increased awareness of ACE score, which could lead to a greater understanding of personal neurodevelopmental history, and increase the probability of receiving appropriate treatment if warranted.
Survey: It is anticipated it will take 10 minutes or less of your time to complete the survey. Participation is both anonymous and voluntary and you may exit the survey at any time.
Compensation: At the completion of the survey, participants may opt to use a link that will take them to a website with additional resources. At the bottom of the website, there is a submission box that allows participants to provide their email address. Participants that provide their email address will be included in a random lottery that will award four $25.00 Amazon gift cards. Gift card winners will be determined upon closing of the survey. If you choose to participate in the survey, the email address provided will in no way be linked to your survey response.
Contact: This survey is being conducted by the California Pharmacy Student Leadership (CAPSLEAD) team at Western University of Health Sciences, College of Pharmacy in Pomona, CA. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Principal Investigator:
